    Nah man I played at Oakridge. That's cool man I had a friend who went to n.d. state too but he got too cold and came back.

    welcome to the log fellow texas brother

    so i have to go see the ex g.f. today.


    i knew it was coming but i'd been putting it off.

    I scheduled my session for right when we get done so I can take the stress and emotions out on the iron.

    Alright so i don't know if it's because i worked out in the evening or because i just got done seeing the ex but i had a good workout.

    Flat Bench Dumb Bell Presses 5 sets of 6 starting with 75-was extremely light and i was just throwing it up so i did 12 reps, then went up to 85's with no rest and pumped out 6 reps. did two more sets at 85's then dropped down to 75's for the last 6.
    • Incline Dumbbell Presses 4 sets of 8 with 55's for the first two sets and 45's for the second two.
    • Dips 3 sets of max-i actually did bench dips to put more focus on my tri's and did 3 set's of 20
    • Tricep Presses 4 sets of 8-with 85's
    I was feeling good. I'm not as strong as i used to be but i finally felt today like i was activating some muscle fibers and it was addicting, so i went and did 2 sets of tri extensions with 120 lbs for 12 reps, did sets of floor wipers (just learned about em today ) and did decline crunches with a 45 for 2 sets of 25

    Today felt great. I finally felt like I was doing something. I felt the fibers in my chest start burning and I couldn't help but smile. I really had a strong desire to do a set of squats, but decided as soon as i got off work tomorrow I would rush to the gym and get my squats in.

    I'm going with "the ex" theory. Was it a good thing? Or an upsetting thing? I've had some of my best dead lift days from being angry with a girl.

    less than a month ago we were engaged. she was older, 23, and we had plans to get married, she'd help me pay for college, we'd start building a family when i started grad school...stuff like that. She broke up with me at 4 a.m. valentines morning, after i spent all night up worried sick about her because i couldn't get a hold of her she had been supposed to call me at 11. (she went to 6th street in austin, tx, which is basically one of the biggest party streets in america)


    it was more depressing than anything. she's the only person i've let myself get close to since my freshman year in highschool.


    I'm back to being alone, which is very much the way i like it.

    Damn, bro. Sorry to hear that. February is still fresh enough to get extremely agitated by seeing her, no doubt. Relational hardships can be overwhelming. I've had a couple, and each one worse then the previous, which was a bit maddening and cumulatively depressing, but it will all work out as long as you don't permanently close in.

    To put things in a tough love perspective, better to have had this happen now, where the cut is clean, then 5 years into a marriage where property, financies and potential children are intertwined. That's more like a slow & messy tearing away, then a clean cut.

    Stay up, bro, and try to stay away from destructive behavior. I've ingested my fair share of reality anaesthetics, and those were some wasted years.

    yea man that is one thing i'm happy about. atleast we didn't have the family started and everything.

    honestly dude, there was a hot chick lifting weights last night in the weight room and if i didn't spend so much time making fun of guys for hitting on girls while they work out i would have asked her for a spot...

    could that have been some of my motivation

    --stole this idea from texaslifter. this is the song that i always start out with when i'm squatting.

    okay did back today. (i've not been following my outline at all )

    Dead Lifts-5 sets of 5 with the following weights in descending order. 285, 275, 265, 245, 235. it's a 10 pound improvement from last week. I've been getting these intense lower back pumps.
    Close Grip T-bar rows- 4 sets of 10 with 90 pounds + whatever the sled weighs
    Wide Grip T-Bar Rows-2 Sets of 15 with 45 pounds + whatever the sled weighs
    Straight Bar Curls- 3 sets of 10 with 95 lbs. I decided i'm going to do curls every other back day.

    I didn't get in untill 8:30 and they kicked me out at 9 so that's all I got done today. I guess I should mention every rep of every set I do is a "negative"...I didn't really know it had a name but anyway i try to explode the weight up and as it's going down i try to count to atleast 5 before it's down...it's what our football coaches made us do...is this okay vol??
